I also have had the same problem a couple of times in the last month, last night being one of them. Servers do go down from time to time, but if a system is subject to a virus attack, you need to know as soon as possible of the onset of the problem. If we had a security group within the administrators , who would be contacted by email and not through the Forum as soon as they start to experience problems, then you could flag up an alert as soon as possible , and reduce the effects of any infection of the system. If the system goes down , and you try to contact people through the system that is having problems, then you are not going to get very far. Do you have any comments on this possibility ??.
